    anyway, i'm usually the loudest guy in the lineup, especially if i'm out there with some friends. i like to talk while watching the swell, i nag my buddies when they should paddle harder for a wave or re-position themselves, and i cheer when they get a ride in.

    this behavior seemed unwelcome at spring lake. given it was mostly groms and posers, but i got the stinkeye every time i yelled out across the lineup to a friend on the other end. i have no idea why. i think a lineup full of silence is uncomfortable. they never said anything to me because i was gettin more rides in than anyone else, but i definitely felt like kids were starin me down because i'm talkative. wtf?
    What beach did you go out in spring lake at?

    I'm big into body surfing. I hate the assholes who think just cause you don't have a surfboard you're in the way. They drop in on me, I'll drop in on them

    I use to surf through the winter but i dont have time anymore. That and the cold just gets to me and i hate it. Once the water gets into the upper 50's im out there with just a rashguard and boardshorts.

    o good lord no #6 we do very much need them i would never think or try to abolish them

    wat i was saying is sometimes i wish that we were allowed out into those waters because there r usually less ppl in the break zone and therefore less dodging but if they let us out then they would have to let all the drug store board riders who just want to ride white water straight out into them there beaches so i understand why we cant although back in the day the lifeguards i knew would let me out on weekdays but that was when surfers beach at north end wasnt ****ed by beach reclamation

    constantly running your mouth in the lineup, yelling at people to paddle harder etc. is unwelcome behavior in just about any lineup. it turns the surfing experience into something like a drill.

    Yup

    The boardshorts crowd, the "only when it's big or the cameras are out" crowd, the "super complainers" crowd. I hear you. You're out everyday either swimming, paddling or surfing whatever's there but when they come out - they own the place. Oh, I know that well.

    I wish there was some kind of locals ID we could come up with to keep them away.
